Norcross Pet Adoption: Meet Asher, Esmeralda, Galaxy & More

Pet News

Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Georgia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new fur child is at Lifeline Animal Project, where Galaxy the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. If you aren't sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Asher, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
